Asian business people in Bougainville under attack

The former secretary of the Bougainville Interim Government, Martin Miriori, was commenting after the looting of two Asian businesses in Buka on Friday last week.

Local reports said the shops had been selling goods that exploited the treasured 'Upe' symbol from the Wakunai district.

Mr Miriori, a brother of former Bougainville president, Joseph Kabui, issued a statement saying Bougainville is for the Bougainvilleans and that the Asian businesses were being targeted for their insensitive business practices.
